Enjoying the balmy warm weather the past few days? Get set for a brief change. A vigorous cold front slicing through the middle of country arrives along the upper Texas coast Friday during the early part of the day. It will likely touch off a few showers and possibly a strong thunderstorm as it arrives. However, anything we see won't be nearly as dangerous as what will occur in the Central Plains and Ohio and Tennessee Valleys Thursday and Thursday night. Here is the latest severe weather outlook from the Storm Prediction Center for that time:
The front struggles to push off the coast late Friday, nevertheless, there will be a slight drop in humidity and temperature. By Saturday morning, we'll wake to upper 50s and low 60s:
It is possible that with lingering cloud cover, highs may not get out of the upper 60s. However, that break from the warm weather is short-lived. Sundays highs are back in the 80s. Stay tuned for any changes in the severe weather threat for Friday.
